Note:
On 9 August 2019 Governor Cuomo signed legislation S.5685/A.4853.A - Brianna's Law, to phase in requirements that all operators of motorized watercraft must complete a state-approved boating safety course. The law is named after Brianna Lieneck, an 11-year-old Long Island girl who was killed in a 2005 boating accident. It expands an earlier law signed by Governor Cuomo that requires boaters born after May 1, 1996 to complete a safety course before operating a motorized watercraft.
Under the phase-in, operators of a motor boat born on or after:
1/1/1993 must have completed a safety course beginning in 2020
1/1/1988 must have completed a safety course beginning in 2022
1/1/1983 must have completed a safety course beginning in 2023
1/1/1978 must have completed a safety course beginning in 2024
ALL motor boat operators regardless of age beginning in 2025
Failure to comply could result in a fine of between $100 and $250. The law does not apply to operators of sailboats under sail, kayaks, standup paddleboards, rowboats or canoes.
America's Boating Course (ABC) is the
finest course available that meets this requirement.
* Most course fees are discounted for United States Power Squadron members and there is a small fee for students who have completed a course or seminar in the past and want to audit the current class as a refresher.
